Three is the magic number at the 2022 World Volleyball Men’s Championship, with co-hosts Poland looking to become the third team to win the tournament three times in a row, and France playing for the Triple Crown of volleyball. Bartosz Kurek and Earvin Ngapeth will be instrumental for their teams, and you can read on to find out how to watch a 2022 World Volleyball Men’s Championship live stream from anywhere.

The Roosters are the reigning Olympic and VNL champions, with Ngapeth being crowned MVP at both events, and they'll be boosted by the return of a fit-again Jenia Grebennikov. Poland, meanwhile, are the world's No.1 ranked team and could potentially play all of their fixtures on home soil, depending on the draw, but Wilfredo León's absence could be a huge factor.

Few teams will be as fired up as Brazil, who have taken silver at the last two World Volleyball Men’s Championships and just missed out on a medal in Tokyo last summer, and co-hosts Slovenia, who have fallen at the last hurdle at the past three European Championships.

Olympic bronze medallists Argentina will be looking to go far too, but they've been drawn into a doozy of a group alongside Nimir Abdel-Aziz's Netherlands, and Asian champions Iran, while the United States and Serbia are hoping to climb back up to the top table.
